Complex Space Models for the Analysis of Asymmetry

  • Naohito Chino


Two kinds of complex space models are discussed for the analysis of asymmetry. One is the H Ermitian Form Asymmetric multidimensional Scaling for Interval Data (EFASID), which is a version of Hermitian Form Model (HFM) for the analysis of one-mode two-way asymmetric relational data proposed by Chino and Shiraiwa (1993). It was first proposed by Chino (1999). Some results from simulations of EFASID are reported. The other is a possible complex difference system model for the analysis of two-mode three-way asymmetric relational data. Implications of such a complex difference system model are discussed.
